Double Oak Vineyards & Winery

Double Oak Vineyards & Winery Double Oak wines have distinct regional characteristics, displaying the intensity of mountain grown fruit, full-bodied yet well balanced and complex. our wines complement any occasion for fine wine. They are a food that creates a synergy with other foods and promotes conviviality. Double Oak's handcrafted wines are made from estate grown, fully ripened, handpicked fruit. An ideal sugar/acid balance is produced by the long ripening time. The juice is fermented in small lots, and then aged in oak barrels for one to two years. They are accessible when young, and their well-structured tannins allow them to bottle age with grace and finesse. The high quality of Double Oak wine stems from many elements, including location / terroir, wine farming, winemaking and aging. Our climate, with its Pacific maritime influence (weather patterns moving through the Golden Gate and continuing northeasterly toward the Northern Sierras) gives us a long slow ripening season. Growing in granitic loam soil through warm autumn days and cool nights, our fruit ripens to a marvelous intensity with full flavors. For Double Oak winemaker, Bob Hilsman, expressing Double Oak’s mountain terroir is elemental. Bob’s winemaking style is to guide but not control, to manage but not manipulate. We have been growing wine grapes since 1982 on seven (soon to be nine) acres of mountain vineyards. We believe it’s all about balance and harmony with nature. Double Oak is dedicated to sustainable and environmentally friendly practices from the vineyard to the winery.
